Researchers Feng Liu, Yong Shi, and Ying Liu set out to test and rank the intelligence quotient (IQ) of various natural and artificial intelligent systems, including humans, Google, Bing, Baidu, and Siri. Based on the tests conducted, Google’s AI has an IQ of 47.28. That ranks just below a six-year child with an IQ of 55.5, but is twice as high as Siri with an IQ of 23.9. It’s also higher than Bing (31.98) and Baidu (32.92).
Interesting results, although I would have liked to see the tests over time. I use an Amazon Echo Dot all the time to ask little questions, and am amazed at how well it can understand me and how quickly it can return an answer. But is it intelligent? Not at all.
